Product Description

The rules have changed but the need for accuracy has not.

OASIS-C brings about a new set of challenges. Just knowing the changes with OASIS-C is not enough. Accurately answering the new and changed OASIS data items is the big challenge. You need to know the CMS expectation related to the new process items and how to complete the complex tables for interventions and plan of care parameters. What about the look-back requirements to complete OASIS items? What is proactive care planning? What are the new requirements related to medications? Get answers to these questions and more during this information-packed 90-minute audio session with Pat Jump. Arm yourself with the secrets to OASIS-C accuracy in order to enhance quality while maximizing reimbursement. Receive key guidance and find solutions to clinician confusion and inconsistency by taking the guess-work out of the new process items. Pat will also give you tips on communicating with referral sources and discharge planners to ease the burden of OASIS data collection.
